Innovation Ohio Says General Assembly Should Heed Voters
COLUMBUS – Innovation Ohio, a progressive think tank headquartered in Columbus, today released the results of a poll showing that large majorities of Ohioans disagree with many of Gov. John Kasich’s key policy and budget proposals.
Among the poll’s key findings are:
Said IO President Janetta King:
“With Gov. Kasich poised to deliver his State of the State address next week – and the Ohio General Assembly beginning its consideration of the Governor’s policy and budget proposals – we believe it’s important to know what regular Ohioans think. And, whether the issue is taxes, school funding, ‘fracking’, or the Ohio Turnpike, it’s clear that most Ohioans simply don’t agree with their Governor. Innovation Ohio stands ready to assist our elected office-holders in crafting policies more in tune with what Ohioans want.”
